The codes of Lazarus and the rich man revealed……
From: The secret to God’s Light
Lazarus and the rich man
Luke 16: 19-31 ‘There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: 28For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29Abraham saith unto him, they have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.’
We learn from this text that Lazarus and the rich man were both separated from their bodies. The spirit of Lazarus was taken up into heaven and the spirit of the rich man in the flames of hell; not where we want to be the day we leave the body. I said leaving the body, as no man can die. Leaving the earthen vessel is the same as leaving the vehicle in which we travelled from point A to point B. The spirit inside the body is the real me, eternal, and can never die.
Let us assume that you had the gift to see a spirit after it left the body. Some person’s spirit then manifest to you and ask for water to drink. Would the spirit be able to drink water from your glass? No, he would not be able to drink from your glass because he has no physical body to drink with. You will simply pour the water onto the floor.
If this is the case, how is it possible that the rich man asked of father Abraham that Lazarus should dip his finger in water and cool his tongue? Lazarus, Abraham, and the rich man were all in spirit. What water did the rich man ask of father Abraham to drink if they were in spirit?
Before we continue with this exercise; we have to crack the code on what spiritual water is first. I quoted John 4 to reveal this code.
The woman at the well
John 4: 7-15 ‘7There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, give me to drink. 8(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 9Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 11The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? 12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.’
Jesus asked the woman to give Him water to drink. Although He had His own water He still requested water from her; why did He do this? We should know that the water which Jesus referred to was the water of the word and not physical water. What some of us might not understand is that the water which Jesus demanded from the woman was also the word.
This is where most of us get confused when reading the Bible. Water will always remain the word. The only difference is that the Bible refers to the evil words as bitter or filthy water; and the Word from God as pure water.
Jesus was in possession of the pure water or teachings from God. But He was curious on how the woman was informed concerning the mysteries of God’s kingdom. Jesus, therefore, asked her to give Him of her water first. In other words, Jesus asked the woman to explain to Him how she understood the teachings of God.
She told Him that they got their teachings from the well of Jacob, which was deep and therefore difficult to extract water from.
In Code: She told Jesus that the teachings of father Jacob was hard to understand, and that Jesus would not understand her teachings, as she did not understand it clearly herself. She told Jesus that they had to dig deep into the well before reaching water. In other words, people who does not understand the Bibles teachings spiritually, has to dig deep to gain some wisdom from it; or to quench the thirst of the souls. In code; the Bible will remain a deep well for those who do not understand the Bible spiritually.
She did not know that it was Jesus she was speaking to. The woman then replied, that the Jews and Samaritans did not communicate.
When people become Christian, they call themselves Jews or to have become Israelites. By this, we are saying that we have been spiritually reborn into the Jewish nation of Jesus. The meaning of the word Israel when translated is, ‘to rule with God.’
In code: The woman was from a different denomination than Jesus. She told Him that the Samaritans did not communicate with others who understood the teachings of God differently to the way their father Jacob taught them. This remained the same in some religions to this day.
Jesus knew that she was seeking the Messiah. He told her that He had the true word everybody was seeking. She was therefore not aware that He was the messiah and compared Jesus to Jacob. Jesus continued asking her questions (drinking of her water) communicating in Jacobs’s teachings as this was the doctrine which she was indoctrinated into.
Code: This means that she remained under the old covenant which God made with Israel in the time of Jacob. She did not live under the new covenant which came by Jesus Christ.
She told Jesus that He had nothing to hold the water with. What she was asking Him, was, whether he had a university degree? Her understanding was that if He had not studied the Bible, or if He was not taught by the wise, it would be almost impossible for Him to understand the Bibles hidden mysteries. Or; there would be no means by which He would be able to reach the water in the deep well.
To her understanding, the same as people today, solely those who are educated or studied at university have the wisdom to understand the teachings from the Bible. They would not listen to those who are not educated. In other words, she asked Jesus whether He had a degree. (Code for container) Being educated would therefore serve as a container to hold water or wisdom according to her.
The code for a well: People to whom the teachings of the Bible is revealed, becomes the well where others will drink from. We can also refer to the Bible as being a well, as this is another container of the written word which holds water. But seekers, who do not understand God’s teachings from the Bible, will find it to be a deep well. They therefore, have to dig deep into the Bible’s written words to find some water to quench the thirst.
Note: One has to remember that many spoken words might not have the power to quench one’s thirst. The preacher teaching the community might speak for two hours, and the thousands of spoken words could remain meaningless to the listeners. This will render the preacher as being a waterless well or waterless cloud. If the preachers words does not create light within us to lead us closer to God, they will remain waterless, or even lightless.
Jesus told her that He had the water of life. He was therefore the well she was longing to drink from and he assured her that she would not thirst again after drinking of His water.
This does not make sense when analysing the text literally. How is it possible to drink water once and never thirst again? We will always become thirsty after drinking water; after a while that is.
Jesus spoke in codes: He said that when she listened to His teachings, it would be made so clear to her understanding that she would not thirst for that which He had explained to her, ever again. She would thirst for God’s Word again yes, but solely for new teachings which He had not yet explained to her before. In other words; she would not understand the entire Bibles mysteries after Jesus educated her for a while; merely what she has been taught.
Moreover, after He revealed new teachings to her, she would again not thirst after what He explained to her; as she would understand it fully, and her thirst would once again be quenched. The soul therefore becomes thirsty when craving after the water which flows from God’s throne.
Jesus told her that she would also become a well of water springing up into everlasting life. What Jesus meant, was that she would understand His teachings so well in time, that she would also become a well where others could drink from. She would therefore be connected to God and become a mouthpiece through whom God would bring the living water to others; the same as Jesus.
I quoted a few extra texts from the Bible, to make the spirit code for water a little clearer to understand.
Proverbs 18: 4 ‘4The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.’
Ephesians 5: 26 ‘26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.’
James 3: 10-11 ‘10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?’
Back to Lazarus: When the rich man asked for water, he was referring to the water of God’s Word.
Jesus makes it clear that the water of God’s Word is everlasting, and this is a good indication on how important it is for the spirit to hear the Word by drinking it whilst we are inside the body. Once we understand the Word and remain on Jesus the path, we will never thirst again
The water is available for many people to drink but we let the water pass us by. The rich man did not accept the Word of God which Lazarus brought to him on earth. But after the rich man had left the body, he realised how thirsty his soul was for the Word of God.
The rich man was not able to reach Abraham and Lazarus, as there was a great gulf separating them. How was this great gulf created?
Imagine being literally thirsty, and there was no water to drink. We would surely die.
The main problem in this instance is that all the rivers with the crystal clear water will have passed us by. The same as the rich man who let the water flow past Him. What happens when water continuously flow past us on the earth? Flowing water creates a river, which washes away the earth and creates a gulf which becomes deeper and wider all the time. This is the way that the Grand Canyon was formed. At the end of the day, when the water has gone; a deep gulf remains.
All the Words that God has spoken, which passed us by, will have created a great gulf between us and God’s kingdom. It will therefore be impossible for those who did not listen, to reach God on the other side after leaving the body.
John 3: 26 ‘26And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.’
The worst we have to face is that after leaving the body we will not even be able to die of thirst. We will grow all the more thirsty as time passes by; but there will be no time.
This is what the fire of hell is like.
Revelation 9: 6 ‘6And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.’
The rich man made a covenant with God, which he did not keep. He had regret for not hearing Lazarus while he was on earth. Lazarus was his well and river which he would not accept or drink from.
The rich man attempted to warn his brothers to listen to Moses and the prophets; but all too late.
I want to shed some light on another code, which we might have missed when reading the teaching of Lazarus and the rich man.
The rich man was thirsting for the word of God and not physical water. But he was burning in a flame. How was it possible for the rich man to burn without a physical body; he was in spirit? What was the flame that burnt his spirit? Surely, my spirit will be able to walk into the middle of the sun without feeling the heat?
There is no physical hell in which the spirit will burn; what is the flame of hell then?
Deuteronomy 4: 23-24 ‘23Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven Image, or the likeness of anything, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. 24For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.’
Could the graven image be the God above the stars which people and the rich man were waiting for? The rich man was waiting for someone of much higher stature than that of Lazarus to teach him. Lazarus had no education and was common in the rich man’s eyes. Or was the rich man’s physical wealth the God he served? He was waiting for a voice to speak through the clouds, or angels surrounded by bright lights; a graven image of how he wanted God to look like.
Lazarus was a vessel which transported Jesus to the rich man and others he had to teach; but the rich man did not except God or His children. The rich man therefore abandoned Jesus and left Him thirsty, hungry, naked and imprisoned. This led to his demise and eternal regret.
